Answer Key Testname: CHAPTER 2 EXAM C 1) In a Pareto chart, the bars are arranged in descending order according to frequencies. The Pareto chart helps us understand data by drawing attention to the categories which have the highest frequencies. 2) Cause Frequency U 9 I 9 F 7 O 5 3) Trend: Answers will vary. Possible answer: Except for a drop in high closing value in 2007, there was a steady rise through 2013, after which there was a sharp drop in 2014 followed by increases through 2016. High Closing Values of Statstar Inc.

7) The frequency polygon appears to roughly approximate a normal distribution. The frequencies increase to a maximum and then decrease, and the graph is symmetric with the left half being roughly a mirror image of the right half. Roundtrip Mileage to School

8) The graph distorts the data because the the vertical scale starts at 60 rather than 0, giving the impression of a large difference in the number of accidents, when actually the number of accidents only varies from 90 to 120. To make the graph less misleading, change the vertical scale so that it begins at 0 and increases in increments of 20. 9) The approximate age at the center is 50 years. Age of Voters

10) The approximate amount at the center is 16 magazines. Number of Magazines Purchased in the Previous Year
